Abstract

Neva Again: Hip Hop Art, Activism and Education in Post-Apartheid South Africa is the culmination of decades of work on Hip Hop culture and Hip Hop activism in South Africa. It speaks to the emergence and development of a unique style of Hip Hop hip-hop activism in the Western and Eastern Capes of South Africa. Neva Again draws on the contribution of hip-hop scholars, artists and activists. It is unique in that it weaves together the many varied and rich voices of this dynamic Hip Hop scene to present a powerful vision for the potential of youth art, culture, music, language, and identities to shape our politics.
